If you like design and fashion, take a look at our next article about Miuccia Prada’s award-winning spring/summer collection and enjoy the photos.
As we all know, The Devil Wears Prada. And even if we haven’t seen the film, we all would love their clothes and accessories. And we are not alone with that: recently, Miuccia Prada's spring/summer 2014 collection has won British Design Museum's annual Designs of the Year Awards in Fashion category.
The punchy, coloured and Pop-Art printed collection is truly exceptional, unified and unique, but sometimes really surprising. It offers sporty dresses decorated with sequins, fur coats with women's faces on them and beautiful sandals for summer.
This powerful collection can be identified very quickly owing to the sporty details, the lively colours, the nice shape of the clothes and the big and spectacular prints, for example women’s faces on the coats and dresses. These big patterns are as important in this collection as the smallest sequins sewed on the dresses.
The long-stemmed socks are surprising with some pieces of the collection, just like seeing the bras on (not under) the dresses. Vogue said of the show “By next summer we'll wonder what we ever wore before.”
This collection has won the Fashion category’s first price from the Design Museum’s competition from quite popular and talented designers. It has beat Raf Simons’ first ready-to-wear collection for Dior, or for example Rick Owen’s Spring/Summer 2014 Show Presentation collection and a special collection of 3D embossed dresses designed by Sadie Williams. Brazilian designer Ronaldo Fraga and DAS Collection haven’t won the competition, either.
Design Museum’s Designs of the Year awards also include categories for architecture, furniture, graphic, product and transport design, with the overall winner set to be announced on June 30. All of the 69 nominated designs are on display in the Design Museum in London, until August 30. Visitors can vote for their favourite in the competition.
